My ancestors all worked in a woollen mill. They lived in Waterside, Salford just south of Huddersfield (in the 19th century). Can anyone tell me whether the mill they worked in would have been Lockwood Mill? It may once have been just accross the river (Holme?) near or replacing Lockwood Spa.
If this was not the site Of Lockwood Mill, was there another wollen mill nearby?
Finally, what did a 'cloth dresser' do? Was it one of the better jobs? I ask this because the don of a cloth dresser married an heiress.
